Anima Mundi is here, and is returning to make the extraordinary settings that have hosted its concerts resound with music since 2001, when the first edition of the festival was conceived by Giuseppe Sinopoli. The pandemic has prevented the twentieth edition from being held in 2020, but the forced pause has only postponed it: from the 9th to the 24th of September the seven traditional appointments will take place, three in the Cathedral and four in the Camposanto, with more ambitious and original programmes than ever, as always focusing mainly on sacred or religiously inspired music.
